Please note Dean Bikes is happy to accommodate custom options. If you wish to build your bike with alternate components, simply contact us, thank you.


All of our complete build bikes are professionally assembled and tuned to perfection. Our professional bike technicians assemble your bike, tune it to perfection, then carefully package and ship it to you.

The professional assembly is already done — all you have to do is put a few parts back together. This is all complimentary to our customers……a $250 value.

“When I first approached the fine folks at Dean back in October, it was with what may have been a rather unconventional mission statement- I want a hardtail that actually FITS! At 6’4″ with a 38″ cycling inseam and a pretty short torso, I am definitely at the limits of the bell curve for human proportions. Stock bikes just aren’t designed around individuals like me. Pete was exceedingly patient, sending countless design iterations until we got it just right.

From the start and throughout the entire build process, Pete, Phil, Travis and Mara were an absolute pleasure to work with. And I must say, they NAILED IT on both fit and finish!”

Janus Cycle Group requires a 50% deposit to begin the design process and to hold a place in production queue for your frame and bike build. 

Once in production, we will invoice you for the remaining balance. Payment in full is required prior to fabrication.

Prices shown do not include taxes, insurance, and shipping charges. Parts specifications and pricing subject to change based on availability in real-time.

We can get a stock size frame (not custom geometry) in build queue relatively quickly if not a complete build order.  Contact us today!
